      A short timelapse video looking towards Hammersmith Bridge, March 2014. The boats are some of the 400 taking part in the Head of the River Race, rowed every March from Mortlake to Putney. In 2014 the race started late and was then abandoned due to unsafe conditions. One boat started sinking (pic: pic.twitter.com/nri8aKHffz) The race in 2013 was also cancelled. The video shows the wind across the surface of the water.

        This film features Lyn Faull who is a wildlife resucuer from Mortlake, in South West Victoria. Rescuing mostly kangaroos and wallabies is her life passion, and she devotes all her time and money to it. This video was filmed by two primary school students of St.Coleman's Primary; Imogen and Isla, and was screened as part of the Mortlake Shines event last month. The film production was mentored by Colleen Hughson, who was Artist at Residence at St.Coleman's and helped the students to brain storm film ideas and produce their own short documentaries about local people. At the request of ABC Open, Imogen and Isla were invited to re-edit the film so that it was a bit shorter to fit snuggly into the My Crazy Passion project. With editing assistance from Emily Bissland and some extra animated sequences, the film you see here is the final product of a lot of hard work from the girls and their mentors! Thanks Colleen, Isla and Imogen, not to mention their fantastic teacher Tracy Hicks and most of all, the very dedicated Lyn Faull.

                  War, what is it good for? Mortlake Anzacs is a short factual film created on iPads by Grade 5 & 6 students at St.Colmans Primary School (Mortlake, Victoria) Primary School students Taylah Casson and Lachlan Gedye interviewed Merv Hampson in the week leading up to Anzac Day (2013). Merv is the President of the Mortlake Branch of the RSL. They were interested to know about Merv’s experience of war and the significance of Anzac Day. The rest of the Grade Five and Six class filmed the Mortlake Anzac Day Parade and interviewed some of the old soldiers marching. ‘Mortlake Anzacs’ was made as a group classroom activity and is part of the ‘Mortlake Shines’ Project (Artist in Schools- An initiative of the state governement) The students used their class iPads to film the interviews and parade. For many, it was their first experience at filming. This film was made in the second week of the project. In the first week, students were taught some basic principals of filming, interviewing and using an iPad for filmmaking. Mortlake Anzacs was an opportunity to practice what they had been taught and to get some hands-on filming experience in the lead up to the creation of their own films. Filming the Anzac Day Parade only after a few lessons in filmmaking, was a steep learning curve but well-worth the experience- the students learnt as much about what to do as to what not to do, when creating a film. The ‘mistakes’ they made here were not repeated later on in their own productions. Each student focused on a different element of the parade to film. The Bagpipes were filmed by Jordan Gray and Isla Voxpops (interviews with the public and soldiers) by Keely and Imogen The march was filmed by Jess, Lachie G and Dusty Interview with Cappy (Ex-Navy) by Dusty Footage at the war memorial by Brodie This film was created as part of the ‘Mortlake Shines’ Project Between April - June 2013, St. Colman’s School grade five and six students took part in a filmmaking project on iPads.
